CSL San Diego

Comment from our dear friends Rev. John Poleski and Dr. Connie Cook Core,               “Relax and know you have initiated a world-wide event whose time has come.”

Unity of Melbourne

Hi Steve,
Thank you for your interest. We had a super day on Sunday, New Thought Day.
Rev. Bill Livingston asked me to do the talk at Unity of Melbourne and I used the full set of your Pdf film that Bret, one of their helpers, converted to Power Point. It was very appropriate and well received, however I do admit that I ad-libbed a bit too. As far as I know Bret filmed the entire production so it could well be available. I will have to check on that.
A suggestion was made that we have a semi regular focus on the various New Thought persuasions, to embrace them all in the consciousness of unity and working together.
Possibly building to an even bigger celebration next March New Thought Day.
Let’s keep in touch,
In loving unity




New Thought Day
This day is celebrated around the world in all the Unity, Religious Science and Independent Metaphysical Churches!
We honor our founding fathers, and the great spiritual teachers who searched for truth and meaning in faith and discovered this ancient wisdom and brought it forth today.
We are ONE in, as and of God. We are ONE with and of each other. There is no separation.  All is connected, living and non-living. Our hearts, mind and soul create our lives. We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. We give thanks!

Sunday, March 1st 2015
Rev. Dr. Stephen Albert will be the guest speaker at the Alpine Church of Spiritual Living in Alpine, CA. Rev. Gay Beauregard is presently the Senior Minister and Dr. Steve was a former  minister at the church

We had a fabulous 2nd Annual  NEW THOUGHT DAY Sunday, March 2, 2014!
Rev. Dr. Abigail Albert enjoyed being with the lovely Unity of Carlsbad Community in Carlsbad, CA . It was a wonderful celebration and many people  said they had no idea New Thought had so  many centers, organizations and publications all over the world.   For many it was the first time they realized they were part of a greater global community.  Everyone, especially the newcomers that day,  enjoyed hearing the spiritual principles, mission, vision and core values we all share.  Thank you Rev. Ray Wiggins for your kind invitation to speak with your congregation on New Thought Day.



Abigail & Steve on NTD

   March 3, 2013

New Thought religious centers around the world celebrate their legacy on the first Sunday of March each year with prayer sessions, guest speakers, parties, pot-lucks and overall singing and dancing.   The New Thought faith embraces positive thinking, listening to one’s inner voice, affirmative prayer, meditation, and other ways of realizing the presence of God within.  The branches celebrating together include: The Association for Global New Thought, Unity Worldwide Ministries, Centers for Spiritual Living, Affiliated New Thought Network, Agape International Spiritual Center, Hillside International Truth Center, Center of Truth, Divine Science, and Universal Foundation for Spiritual Living.  New Thought participated at the 2009 Parliament of World Religions in Melbourne, Australia under the banner of ‘Global New Thought’ developed by The Association for Global New Thought.
